Who is Jay?

Jay is bilingual (English and French), quiet and reserved and can frequently be seen walking down the street with his nose in his phone. But he has some kind of internal radar that prevents him from walking into stationary objects. 

His interminable desire to drive really fast and powerful vehicles gives him an advantage over competitors in the automobile patent industry. 

A kid at heart, he thrives on writing patents for the toy industry as well. 

Jay loves travelling, cycling and being outdoors with his 3 children. 

He’s been known to enjoy mixed cocktails featuring small umbrellas, and the occasional Bourbon. 

Jay has a B.A.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from University of Waterloo and is a P. Eng.
